Los Cerritos Community Newspaper endorses longtime community leader and business owner George Ray in the March 5th Cerritos City Council election.
George Ray will bring intelligence and a sharp business sense to a City Council that is in dire need of a new fresh start.
Ray likes to tell voters that he moved to Cerritos when there were “thousands of cows and chickens.” That’s a plus in our book because Ray knows where Cerritos came from and how it was molded.
Ray has been involved in Cerritos since 1969. When he and his family moved into what use to be a cow pasture, Ray quickly became a leader by pitching in and doing the heavy lifting by serving as a key member of the Planning Commission and helped start local civic organizations.
Ray knows what Cerritos is all about. He “gets it.”
We also like the fact that Ray has built a successful private business here in the community and understands what it means to meet a payroll week in and week out.
When elected, we hope that Ray will work hard to cut waste and to trim the fat off that preverbal “cow” that has become both a curse and an asset here in Cerritos.
We do have some concerns that Ray has many personal relationships with people who think the “status quo” is the rule at Cerritos City Hall. Los Cerritos Community Newspaper will keep an eye on Ray, but first voters need to do the right thing and vote for him on March 5.
